Within the past 10 minutes- Liberty Fire was sent to an address in the northeast Northland Kansas City MO on an emergency medical call.
All KC-MO Fire units in that area were in service and not on any calls.
Now while I'm sure the issues have been straightened out since- I recall not too many years ago when there was a problem with Liberty MO's EMS people and some of them were fired for some sort of malfeasance.
There has NEVER been ANY such issues regarding KC-MO's emergency services.
In addition- KC-MO residents paying extra taxes like that Earnings Tax SHOULD get the same KC-MO services everyone else gets.
In no way belittling the training of suburban fire departments- I STILL would want and demand THIS city's fire department AND EMS AND police to respond to my KC-MO address if the need arises and certainly when KC-MO resources are available and sitting in their stations.
Not Grandview- not Parkville- not Liberty.
